the obama administration for talking about drones to news outlets like "the new york times" and you have one of the is your gates for killing osama bin laden. if you want to know what his policy is, by using flying killer robots to do it, the answer is that he also thinks killing bin laden was a good idea. he wouldn't crash one in iran. any questions? it is days like this when you realize that however important this presidential campaign is and this decision is, that we as a country have to make between these two candidates, our politics are essentially failing right now. they're essentially impotent now for debating questions like this one. choosing between candidates is supposed to be the way we choose between policies in important thing that affect or country including national security. but our politics have been allowed to shrink if one side doesn't want to talk about it, we're not going to debate it as a country. let people in washington figure it out. a new report out today says our secret drone policy, which we've been implementing for the better part of a decade, may be radicalizing
did mention the world hot spots and the problems bedeviling the obama administration. here is just a sampling. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> reporter: and mr. romney has argued on the campaign trail for weeks now that with him as president the u.s. will once again return to shaping world events and spreading democracy and the american view rather than passively watching as violence erupts all over the world. jamie? jamie: carl, thanks so much, live here in new york city. jon: a decades-old murder case, jamie back in the spotlight. michael skakel is serving 20 years to life for the murder of a 14-year-old martha moxley back in 1975 in connecticut. he was convicted years after the kill
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother and
40 people were questioned. remember the obama administration said the attacks were linkked to protest and were spontanous . said it was self evident what happened in benghazi a terrorist atack. toss to steve. >> steve: thank you, brian. it was supposed to go to a sick person but a good kidney wound up in chicago. the nurse accidentally threw the kidney in the garage and didn't realize it was put in sterile solution. it was poor oversight. one nurse was fire another nurse resigned over the incident. >> gretchen: want to keep your welfare benefits. keep your students in school. if they miss more than 10 days of class. family checks are cut off. critics say it is. >> i think it is very unfair and very stupid. i mean, it doesn't make sense. >> it matters, if you are not going to school and doing what you are supposed to with your kids, how is the future going to work. >> new rules start in october 1st. there is a plan to get benefits back once the kids turn to school. >> brian: another look at stupid criminal file . an 18 yore old attempting to car jack this porsche. after seeing a police
mitt romney can't go a foreign policy speech once without saying in his view the obama administration has thrown israel under the bus. he has specifically been playing to his relationship with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. they have known each other for almost 30 years when mitt romney took his overseas trip he spent a lot of time with netanyahu and referred to each other by first names and very informal and on brightly spotlighted international stage. romney believes he will strengthen u.s. alliances with israel and that is absolutely necessary and he suggested mr. obama too often has been disrespectful and given the cold shoulder to the jewish state that becomes emblem attic of all of that that is not what the clinton cgi speech is all about. republicans for decades in the polls had an advantage on foreign affairs and international policy. in recent months in this campaign, president obama as the incumbent commander-in-chief had a small advantage in some places. romney sees opportunity to combat that and erode that suggesting that the leadership of president obama w
. prosecutions. it's not straight down the line. the obama administration has deported more illegal aliens than any other in history. holder has enforced the drug laws pretty aggressively. how do i put this west guy into progressive? is he a far left guy? >> >> why do you identify him as far left guy. >> worked in san francisco advocacy. >> that makes him a liberal. >> all right, the lind thing, i mean obviously when you take a high profile case like that, people ask questions. >> and i would answer the question and say there is some people who believe that everybody has the right to a lawyer, particularly the despised and that it's one of the great things of american law that everybody does get a defense. now, if i were in his position and i were giving away free time, i might prefer to spend it defending a black kid in the inner city about to get 30 years for a new drug offense or find other causes. i personally wouldn't do this cause. going back to john adams defended the british soldiers who were in the boston massacre we do have a tradition of providing representation. >> bill: that's fine
your advisers are, in essence, giving the obama administration -- giving the obama debate team the play that they are going to run as if this president isn't going to be prepared to counter anything. i don't know what kind of campaign they are running and the last thing i would do is publicize my strategy in the first debate. >> i think you're right. >> the only thing i think more alarming about publishing your strategy before the debate is that they are going at what has been a weak point of mr. romney. i mean, just this week he's had to defend himself against accusation that he's been fast and loose with facts. look at this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's been anything amiss, we correct it or remove it. >> so the fact that the media has called him on things that seem to be full of falsehoods, the irony here is that you're going to use that as your strategy? >> i think it's the only thing that they have left that they believe they can put the obama campaign back on the defensive. i agree with joe. it's surprising that they are putting this forward and it has to b
debate at the heart of the presidential race, which is, going forward, this is the obama administration's tagline. they would say let's let the agency do its job. the republican position is is ill-advised and we would like kill it or change it. host: how widespread is predatory lending these days and what is the agency currently doing about? about guest: predatory lending is deceptive lending practices o. it is extremely widespread. if you pick up a credit card application, you will see dozens of pages of fine print that is hard for anybody to really get through and most people don't even try. there are teaser rates, for instance, a lower rate on credit cards in a short amount of time that would triple or quadruple and they don't tell you that the upfront. it's in the fine print. it's very widespread. almost the essence of the new agency is to and changed the terms of debate so that predatory lending is very hard for companies to get away with, so that they have to make their money helping people save and invest and advance themselves financially rather than the way the system now is. s
the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t
what sticks. we've seen that the past week or so with their criticism of the obama administration regarding foreign policy decisions specifically what happened over in libya and with the ambassador being killed over there. we're seeing here now that they realize it doesn't pay to be outwardly partisan. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be ta
, the government, lost. tracy: the obama administration is saying the little guy cannot suit the big evil jpmorgan, we will do it or you. ashley: where the three of us are now seated are some very fine law firms who will represent a bunch of the little guys what's called a class action. a class action is free legal services for the little people. the government of the state of new york should have better things to do with its resources and open up this can of worms which is been buried for four years. >> how do you see this playing out? >> icy jpmorgan chase coughing up a lot of money for this to go away. without any admission of liability on its part. the only liability they may have is a failure to engage in due diligence. they had little choice. that is how they work, ashley. [laughter] tracy: judge napolitano, you are the best. >> great interview i melissa. i understand he was not happy when he left. tracy: he is gone. he is out of fear. ashley: it is not easy being green. new rules for marketers that will make companies back up any claims of environmental benefits for their products. dennis o
by the previous administration and the obama administration to confront china on trade issues. now he's saying, this is a door mat. i'm the one who will be tough. >> that was romney 2.0. that's clear that's the case. one of the specific cases that romney criticized the president on was the tire dumping case, which has resulted in jobs in cooper tire and finley, ohio. mitt romney just senses an opportunity here. there's no real -- there's been no real interest in his career in standing up to china. the president is doing the right thing. i urged him to be a bit more aggressive. he needs to move more aggressive on currency. this legislation would matter. there's no question. the president recently came to ohio to announce an auto parts trade action. we went from a billion-dollar trade deficit to $10 billion over the last ten years. that's a lot of job loss and a lot of jobs we could start to regain with with we enforce the rules that china clearly is cheating. they subsidize capital and energy and land and water. they don't play fair on currency. we stand up to them, it means good jobs and it wi
court is now back in session for the first time since it ruled on the obama administration's landmark health care law last june. so how might mitt romney change the high court if he becomes president of the united states? he's already giving all of us some major clues. let's bring in cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns who's taking a closer look. what are you seeing? >> the supreme court doesn't get talked about that much on the campaign trail. but choosing a justice is one of the most important things a president does. it's how on administration puts its mark on some of the nation east toughest, most divisive issues. and we have a look at how mitt romney might handle it if he's president. whenever mitt romney fielded questions during the primaries about his picks for the supreme court, he was armed with a stock republican answer. >> what i would look to do would be to appoint people to the supreme court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to to legislating from the bench. >> reporter: but he wouldn't choose a favorite. >> would you pick one, please? >> y
the administration, and how team obama the campaign will handle this. so far they feel very confident in their foreign policy and they're saying national security is one of their biggest strengths. >> okay. felicia, here's john kerry. he signed a letter with other senate intelligence committee members for more info on the libya matter. take a listen to this. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> he goes on to say it's all political now. i mean, is this going to become a campaign issue? >> absolutely. you're already seeing it become a big issue on the campaign. particularly on the republican side. of course. the problem, though, is that the house and the senate both adjourned for the rest of this year, up until after the election, earlier this month, and so if this is going to be an issue that republicans wield against the obama ticket it's going to be one that they're going
and the barack obama administration from the beginning has been focusing on veterans. michelle obama -- >> she's always with the families. >> this is a theme that runs through the administration. it's paying off now in many states. >> and romney did them the favor of not mentioning -- >> of not mentioning. in senate races it will be big. that's a constituency surprisingly in favor of this president which in the past has not been the case with democratic presidents. >> this rings with that great movie by oliver stone, they cheer when you go off to battle, when you come back wounded you're not really one of them anymore. it's terrible. >> it's been smart and humane of the obamas to focus on it. >> thank you, howard fineman, great conversation howard and joy. >> claire mccaskill versus todd akin. two months ago missouri was a good bet for republicans. let's see how it's looking now. claire mccaskikacaskill joins u. >>> with four judges from the supreme court in their 70s, the next president could dramatically shift of the balance of the court to the right or to the left. who do you want picking t
no mistake -- >> president obama at the rose garden. now, david axelrod and others in the administration are now saying that he was quick to label the benghazi killings an act of terror based on his wording there. keeping them honest, that was both the first and last time that he used that word in relation to this. even days later, no one in the administration even came close to that language. listen. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. at will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begi
with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bomber on the airplane. it was done
, and use them as a pretext to justify his assault upon the foreign policy of the obama administration and yet we know what he really thinks. again, we've seen behind the curtain. we see that the wizard of oz is a small guy. we see os not the big, bad wolf that he claims to be in his hawkish policies. here is a guy who dismiss the with elite condescension with the vast majority of americans. it's inexplicable why mitt romney would continue to poll even moderately well among those members of the white working class or working poor or those who are even in the middle class because mitt romney thinks they're a bunch of moochers and hangers on and victimizers and victim hmong gmongerers. his picture of them is so distorted that we can't trust what he says about obama and we can't even trust what he says about the people who would ostensibly be part of his constituency. i think the man is confused. it's not the bump on the road, it's the bump on his head from which he's suffering a bunch of stars and he can't see. >> i want to put a question to all of you. despite mitt romney delivering i t
pressure on the obama administration tonight. after two weeks of changing stories from the white house following the libya terror attacks. tonight, four gop senators sending a letter to susan rice calling for answers. >> we welcome back to the program senator ron johnson of wisconsin. mr. johnson, thank you, sir. you and a handful of other senators have written a tough letter to u.n. ambassador susan rice. can you tell us what's in that letter and what prompted you to write it? >> well, you know, we are calling on ambassador rice to explain the inaccuracies on the news shows. following the killing of ambassador stevens in benghazi. and really, it was very apparent, larry, very early on that this was a pre-planned attack. the libyan president said it was a pre-planned attack. and you have the ambassador of the united nations for the united states coming on and misleading the public. basically we have sent a letter to ambassador rice to explain herself. >> you know, there's a story out today, i didn't know if you saw it, senator, but the story essentially was that the united states gover
motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. >>> the obama administration's foreign policy moved domestic concerns to the side for a time this week. the president on tuesday addressing the u.n.'s general assembly meeting. the middle east and the threat posed by iran's nuclear weapons program topped the agenda there. after his speech, the president had no follow-up meetings with foreign leaders, not even with the leader of our closest ally in the middle east, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. prime minister netanyahu addressed the assembly thursday. and he famously used that image of a bomb with a lit fuse to make the point that iran cannot be allowed to make a nuclear weapon. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> joining me now, mark regev, the chief spokesperson for prime minister netanyahu. good saturday afternoon to you, sir. thank you for coming back. >> my pleasure. >> governor romney spoke with the prime minister by phone on friday after the call. governor romney spoke with reporters about possible action against iran. tak
intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing tra
